We were on Highway 2 south of Calgary and passing through the town of Nanton when we spotted a sigh for the The Nanton Lancaster Society Air Museum. Being aviation buffs a visit was required.
The Museum is dedicated to Bomber Command during World War II and there is a memorial outside that lists the names of the 10,000 Canadians who died while serving.
Admission to the museum is by donation. There are displays of uniforms, equipment and training manuals. Several displays recount the exploits of some of the Canadians that served.
There are several aircraft on display with the Avro Lancaster being the center piece exhibit.
I learned more about the the contribution made by Canadians and had another chance to see the the planes and equipment used. It is well worth your time to pay a visit. Visit the website, www.lancastermuseum.ca
